A GRAVEYARD'S RAMBLE
I took a stroll in the graveyard
One bleak November day,
When the skies were dull and leaden
And all around looked gray,
And gloomy, so my thoughts were;
I felt in a pensive mood
And sought a lonely hour
That I might think and brood.
It was very still and silent
Not a living soul was seen,
And all alone I wandered
Through the narrow paths,
Between the marble head stones
And monuments so grand,
They looked like ghastly sentinels
Guarding the sleeping band
There stood a massive granite shaft
That towered up so high
It seemed to say 'neath it
No common form could lie;
A magnate's name I read,
And knew him through hearsay;
I wondered if his body
Became a high graded clay
What wealth I saw about me
In these cold well chiseled stones;
The sculptor's grandest masterpieces
Is raised o'er rich men's bones;
Oh! What a sham and mockery
The poor, that man oppressed
And filled his coffers from the blood
Of starved - let him rest.
I passed along and then I came
To a lone neglected spot,
Where weeds had grown and read
"Here lie my bones to rot.
No name, no deed recorded;
Naught else could be seen
But I felt that, that unknown one
Had been somewhat like me.
Soon my three scores years and ten
Will pass, I will lie
Beneath the sod forgotten,
But little will care I
If my God to my soul mercy
Will show 'twill matter not.
I'll choose this crude inscription:
"Here lie my bones to rot."
I have been doing genealogy for the past 11 years.
I am researching the surnames:

Thank you for the transfer of my family members on the Hood side of the family, and most recently my grandmother, Rosa K. Hood, 107462717. I appreciate all of you efforts and thank you for a job well done. I sincerely hope your research continues to be a source of joy, accomplishment and fulfillment for you.
|Mario Ragucci||RE: Hello Nicole|
Yes, especially if you are from around Naples. Thank you for the note, Nicole. I was just thinking of you recently. I saw several graves that you have memorialized, quite a few. Do you consider yourself to be a prolific graver? You know, I can research my mom (from Florida) and her ancestors clear back to 1790's. But my dad, his parents are from Avellino, It. So they are it and that is sad for me. I have the names of my fraternal great grandparents, but that is where it ends. I wish I could make contact with my Italian ansestors electronically. When you say you research, what do you look at? Are there ever going to be prolific gravers out of Avellino :-)
|Mario Ragucci||Hello Nicole|
Just stopping by to say hello to you. You were one of the first people I connected with at Find A Grave. Have you discovered anything new about Ragucci?remember you sent me pictures from around Naples, Avelino, Piasdiorda (?) I still have them in my collection and I appreciate what you sent. Best to you Nicole!
|Jack Lowe||THANK YOU!|
Appreciate you initially creating the memorial for Samuel S Kutz, and for transferring control to me.
Regards from a fellow ancestry buff...

|Jack Lowe||Samuel S Kutz|
I'm in the process of entering burial information for family members into Findagrave. I just entered a headstone picture for Samuel S Kutz 64836371; he is my uncle.
I'm going to be posting his wife and daughter who are also buried at the Northampton County Shrine.
Could I take control this profile?
|Ron Meyers||RE: Mary Eagen|
Any time, Nicole.
|Tony Chiofolo||RE: Charitable Martino & Regina Martino|
Opps, you are correct, it should be 1956. Thanks.
|m hendriksen||RE: Vincent DiGennaro|
